Juniper Networks Multiservice Edge, Core and Carrier Ethernet Routers Awarded Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) 21 Certification

Juniper Networks®, the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that its M Series Multiservice Edge Routers, T Series Core Routers and MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers have been awarded certification to Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) 21 Standards by Iometrix, the MEF-authorized independent certification testing laboratory.

The MEF's Carrier Ethernet Certification Program is designed to ensure that global infrastructure equipment and services comply with MEF standards and accelerate the worldwide adoption of interoperability. MEF 21 certifications focus on Link Operations Administration and Maintenance (Link OAM) mechanisms which enable real-time discovery, monitoring, fault management and performance management of the network. As the MEF provides a single, globally-recognized test and certification process, the equipment certified to MEF 21 will help reduce OPEX significantly by eliminating testing, service costs and charges for providers. By certifying its compliance with these specifications, Juniper's routing platforms have demonstrated that they establish a solid foundation for interoperability.
